Hmmm. What is meant by "cleaning up" a vocal track? Wouldn't overdubbing imply taking another track and putting it on top (or is that how it would be "cleaned up" -- e.g., exchanged with another one)?

Im pretty sure when they clean up or remaster they are looking at the waveform of the signal and removing certain frequencies that are responsible for static or hiss or even low level feedback...Again, like Dennis said, Charlie could answer this better.

I do know that some serious overdubbing went on during Workingman's...Just listen to UJB, that was tracked over a few times to get that harmony to sound that way...They borrowed that from Crosby and CSN, who were notorious for tracking their vocal harmonies over and over until they got it just the way they wanted it to sound. Jackson talks about that breifly in Garcia: American life.

Now this is above my pay-grade. But I am sure Charlie or one of the folks here more knowledgeable about this will chime in to clarify...
